Re: Today I mostly .....

Let's finish the job we started yesterday. It was still cold. https://i.ibb.co/xSYPgxV/IMG-20210124-143221.jpg Somewhere down the line once the garage is actually sorted out I'll have to think about getting some heating installed. Step 1...Do what I should have done yesterday and spend ten minutes t...

Re: Today I mostly .....

I've been doing a bit of a poor job of updating things on the cars lately, though mainly because not a huge amount has been going on. It's a good time I've found to start ticking off a few of the jobs which had been waiting for the right time to happen and/or further information. One of these jobs w...

Re: Today I mostly .....

While today has largely been extremely annoying there was some good news: This arrived in the post. https://i.ibb.co/ftJcMRt/IMG-20210121-150359.jpg Sadly we do appear to have suffered some damage during shipping. Looks like we have a display issue. This is showing an incremental count through all 1...

Re: Today I mostly .....

New webpage now online for the Casio PF-3000 Calculator and Data Bank https://i.ibb.co/BzVb1RN/IMG-20210116-001331.jpg An interesting little device from back when the designers hadn't quite figured out what form what we came to know as the PDA would take. Noticed one typo already I'll need to go bac...

Re: Today I mostly .....

all of them of course I later found three of them hiding amongst the ridiculously huge pile of leaves, dead things and other crap that fell out of the heater assembly. I only found the fourth one the day after i finished reasssembling everything. I still want to know where the fourth one from my Ni...

Re: Today I mostly .....

I had the fun of removing the heater assembly from the LADA today. Of course, when I say fun... I had a seized heater valve and also i suspected water ingress through the air vent (which i confirmed). And now i can look forward to the joy of putting it back together again. Well done. How many of th...

Re: Today I mostly .....

Despite successfully finishing wiring up the condenser enclosure and getting the remote start button working yesterday the day ended rather depressingly when I managed to lock the keys in the van. I also discovered that the battery charger I thought I had repaired following it going bang quite spect...

Re: Today I mostly .....

Finally got around to building up the enclosure for the distributor condenser for TPA today. The 0.22uF caps still haven't arrived, so I've just made up a dual 0.1uF cap. As it will be living in a large enough enclosure there's really no issue with this. https://i.ibb.co/F58QsSB/IMG-20210104-133029....

Re: Today I mostly .....

I might die of shock...Two updates on my website in three weeks. The Kovac K-80D is now live in the Vintage Technology section. Definitely need to get started on the Spring Cleaning of the site as a whole soon though. I'd really like to get some of the older stuff archived and get some actually read...

Re: Today I mostly .....

Should hopefully have some car work this week as I've a few minor jobs lined up for this week, weather permitting. Need to make a trip out to a pharmacy one day this week too and am fully intending to take the Invacar out for that. It's been weeks since I drove the poor thing. We had the first actua...

So fleet summary for 2020. Out: 1993 Lada Riva 1500EFi Estate. https://i.ibb.co/HhBvcj0/IMG-20191020-174953.jpg Had just had a bit of an enthusiasm crash for it to be honest. The injection conversion had been working reliably for about a year, just needed a few things tidied up before I could actual...

Re: Today I mostly .....

I might die of shock...I actually just uploaded a new page to my website. First time since 2017 I think! Hopefully the first of many as I've quite a few things I want to get written and uploaded - and I *really* want to rewrite some of the older pages. A huge portion of that site was written when I ...

Re: Today I mostly .....

With a working 3D printer now in hand, software wise I suspect I've got quite a steep learning curve ahead I think. https://i.ibb.co/fnZ3Wf4/IMG-20201227-162140.jpg While I know there are a few more basic tools out there, I do tend to think that if I can wrap my brain around it that learning to driv...

Re: Today I mostly .....

This afternoon I wanted to make something useful out of this box of bits. https://i.ibb.co/Hg7Ssw1/IMG-20201226-152427.jpg Wasn't entirely sure what to expect here. Two reasons...One is that I've never set eyes on a 3D printer of this type in person before, and secondly this is a direct from China b...

Re: Today I mostly .....

Someone was enjoying this afternoon... https://i.ibb.co/jZt5wGL/IMG-20201225-145944.jpg Getting to destroy the wrapping paper is pretty much his favourite thing in the world. https://i.ibb.co/LQvHmnz/IMG-20201225-150003.jpg https://i.ibb.co/QHqqTSm/IMG-20201225-150057.jpg The main box waiting under ...
